The Netherlands is a great example, your can deal with rising seal levels. Expensive but it can be done. A warmer world is preferable to a colder one if given the choice. You can't do a thing about a mile of ice above Europe etc. Not a thing. But we already do have air conditioning.

The second largest cruise liner company Royal Caribbean is a wee bit more environmentally friendly with just four times more pollution than all European cars on the road every year. Gotta make sure the wealthy going on their jollies from port to port are not emptying their pockets for the privilege, however Jane Doe driving her modest car to the local SuperValu to serve you your groceries will be forced to pay top carbon-tax €uro just to keep a roof over her head.

Why are airliners exempt from carbon taxes? Well, if the costs of flying in cheap labour into western Europe hinders such movement of cheap labour and you've several factories to run - just threaten to cut the party political donations and hey presto, a press statement is released stating that such a move would "prove difficult" and would require a cross-EU "consensus" on such matters. €64bln banking debt - they'll stay on 'til 2am to get that one around the necks of taxpayers.

You can see where this is going, right?

Below are actual videos from Davos/World Economic Forum:



The world economic forum agenda for the year was "the great reset" I.e how can they reshape the world economy to make it greener.

The big take from it online is their phrase "you'll own nothing and you'll be happy"

Basically using climate change and covid as excuses to make more money. It would be conspiracy theory stuff if it wasn't so transparent and open.
